Synopsis

Students will consolidate and explore specific themes and subject matter evident within their studio work in relation to the cultures and traditions in which these themes already exist. An investigation into the conceptual, formal and technical aspects of the work of a number of historical and contemporary artists who are similarly concerned will be undertaken. As well as producing a folio of work, students will be expected to keep a journal which documents in visual and written form their investigations and progress. Studio practice may be undertaken in complementary areas such as painting, photography and sculpture.

Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will:

  1. be able to express analytically and critically, in oral and written form, associations and differences between their own work and the work of other artists who have worked or are working within a similar tradition or theme
  2. be able to further investigate the specific themes and subject matter they are pursuing in their art practice
  3. be able to connect the formal, technical and conceptual relationships of their work
  4. observe and employ occupational health and safety appropriate to studio practice.
